There are in the world today 2.8 billion people who have little of no access to the Gospel. Don’t you think that every person has a right to at least hear the Good News? Every New Testament church has a calling and responsibility in changing that reality. What is God saying to you?
IMB connect is a new initiative of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico. This is a historic time for all Southern Baptist churches. Baptists are continuing to support missionaries in prayer and financially through the Cooperative Program and even through short-term mission trips. But these days Southern Baptist churches are working hands-on as partners with IMB missionaries planting churches. Many are taking the Gospel to people and places where it has never been heard. They are prayer-walking, sharing the story of Jesus, discipling new believers, training leaders, and helping to form new church groups. They are working with national believers and IMB personnel in strategic ways to impact the world for Christ.
Can you see the vision of your church working in a village in Pakistan or a major city in Europe or a tribal group in Africa? You would know the local believers by name. You would see God changing the lives of His people as you work and pray for them year after year. Adults, youth, and children of your church would learn about the language, culture and life of people living in far places.
IMB Connect will train and guide you through the journey. We can help you discover the place where the Lord is calling you. We can connect you with the IMB missionaries on the field. We will provide training for leaders and teammates. We will do more than merely challenge you…we will walk with you throughout this great adventure. IMB Connect is more than just taking a mission trip; it is a long commitment to work with a specific people in a specific place.
